Oxycline

Slow release O2 candle, the light of breath.

With all the research into Hydrogen absorbing and releasing materials, and for that matter, perfumes, I'm wondering if there is a material that can be used for O2. An airwick but with actual o2 for emergency confined spaces.

The candle could be a weak carbon o2 prison structure that breaks with environmental knocks from other gases. Or maybe a light sensitive structural change or even just a slow release molecule giving 02 . A blood sausage of densely adapted heme might be possible.

So when that stuffy, teenage room contains that listless sloth, peel open an Oxycline and lob it in like a Berroca.

Sodium Peroxide https://en.wikipedi...iki/Sodium_peroxide
Highly reactive [8th of 7, Dec 25 2018]

       Solid-state oxygen generators, like chlorate candles and lithium peroxide packs, are Baked and WKTE.

       Non burn, non powered ones ? I was thinking just diffusion.

       Sodium peroxide, lithium peroxide ... no heat required, just airflow.   

       Quite reactive, though. Keep away from anything flammable.

       I'm now thinking a double walled canister with the second bleeding o2 at a constant rate.The first is for opening. Spatially only O2.

       Keep AWAY? do you want to reconsider that statement? It's so far out of character I'm beginning to suspect a hack

       //Slow release O2 candle//   

       Would that be ... <dr evil pause/> ... an oxymoron?

       No, since the result is spontaneous ignition. That's a good thing, but only at a chosen time and place, not necessarily "right here, right now".
